Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-06-14 02:40:48 UTC
It seems AOOo Bugzilla found a way to suppress obsolete Versions in the Version picker, please try <https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=3790>
The old version is visible, but it's not possible to select one of the lots of old Versions you see in
Report <https://issues.apache.org/ooo/report.cgi?cumulate=0&resolution=---&y_axis_field=version&width=600&height=350&action=wrap&format=table>

We should get something similar, our LibO-Bugzilla-admins can set an "Donotshow" flag to more than 1 year old alpha and beta versions, what makes them invisible for new selections in pickers. But the admins have the possibility to assign also those obsolete Versions to bugs if necessary; I doubt that that will happen too often. 

If I do not hear objections I will forward this request to FDO admins.

We can already filter out based on version and date...not sure how useful this would be. Also no need to email FDO admins, we can edit the site ourselves. Maybe ask the devs in the mailing list if this would be helpful for them. Going to mark this as a WONTFIX as it's not really our bug.
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-06-20 13:57:54 UTC
As far as I know this one will be fixed by a fix for Bug 50198

@Joel Madero:
I am one of the admins you recommend to ask, and I decided to reopen the Bug. You arguments have nothing to do with the intentions of this report

Tower for Florian: What are your intentions? Currently I do not know any remaining problem after a fix for Bug 50198

After the upgrade obsolete versions can be disabled.
Comment 8 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-09-29 06:05:24 UTC
I will attach some hints here how this new feature can/will be used in future for LibO
Comment 9 retired 2013-12-08 12:25:22 UTC
Freeing bug since rainer retired. We should takle this when setting up our own bugzilla instance.

I *think* this is fixed. I do not see any older versions than listed.

Correct me please, if I'm mistaken. Setting to fixed.

Sorry for the noise. Totally confused this with BSA. This is about bugzilla.

More coffee needed in my system to assure proper functionality.
